The purpose of the Mid-Atlantic Resource Guide for Disaster Preparedness is to assist institutions in the preparation of their own Emergency Telephone List and in the selection of emergency supplies and equipment to have on-site. As part of every disaster preparedness and response plan, institutions should have an up-to-date emergency telephone list and should maintain a stockpile of supplies and equipment to use in initial recovery efforts.
Download the Mid-Atlantic Resource Guide for Disaster Preparedness (PDF) to find a list of over 100 vendors and associations for reference. Knowing whom to call and having some supplies on-hand helps save time and allows staff to respond as quickly as possible in an emergency.
The Mid-Atlantic Resource Guide for Disaster Preparedness is partially subsidized through funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
